IlDuce: My most recently purchased car, a 1998 Ford Mondeo, when it came time to sell, nobody wanted it. I dropped the price down and down, and in the end it was $300 and STILL nobody wanted it, so I took the goodies off and kicked it in, then took it to the car crusher...

Sorry: but it was a Ford. What did you expect Tongue out never heard the term:

Fix
Or
Repair
Daily

Sorry, don't mean to be harsh. There is no resale on cars in this country; luck of the draw.

1gkar: Another one for Altezza. In my case, the sport wagon Gita. 2 litre v6 in-line auto. Very smooth drive & the better build quality associated with Lexus. Enough room for overnight bags & golf clubs or two Wink

Current car is an '01 VX Commodore S, caused me an inordinate amount of grief in the first couple of years but now I should be set for years to come. Previous car was a Honda Prelude which I owned for 12 years, took it from 70K to well over 200K. Loved that car and I felt guilty for ditching her for the newer, prettier car. A broken radiator and cracked head later, I wondered if it had been a good decision! Another 10 years driving and I'll be happy.

I know this thread is a bit dated...But I have a new ride and I need to show off somehow!  It's technically my girlfriend's car, but I'll ignore that slight technicality for now.  I'm on the insurance, that's all that matters. ;)
Here she/he is.  No name yet.  Needs a little work here and there, but will be a good fun car soon hopefully.  It's a '97 Toyota Caldina GT-T (2.0L Turbo) and all the extras.

Toyota Caldina GT-T ST215





Sometimes what you don't get it a blessing in disguise!

A Nissan 200sx - like this picture I grabbed off the internet. It's a 1994 model and I've had it since 1998. Stock standard turbo manual, and has not been mucked about with nor thrashed to death. :)



Great cars, damn shame Nissan stupidly stopped making them. The only possible replacement these days could be the Toyota 86 / Subaru BRZ.
